Stunning coastal Location with Hot Tub & Sauna. - Yr Ydlan



Updated: 12-Sep-2016
Walk to the sea from your cottage door. Relax in our mini spa.

Our six welshstone cottages are tucked away within the spectacular landscape of the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park. Offering seaviews over Cardigan Bay and the Preseli Hills, it’s a secluded haven of peace and quiet. North of St Davids and south of Cardigan Market Town, our cottages give easy access to Ceredigion, Pembrokeshire and Carmarthenshire. It is a perfect location to explore South West Wales. Comfortable, bright and spacious they are fully equipped with modern amenities, complimentary quality linen and quality towels. Log stoves and open fires make for a cosy stay any time of the year. Each cottage has its own patio, most overlooking our natural gardens. These are perfect for alfresco dining and enjoying the sunset with a nice cold drink whilst wildlife spotting, especially our visiting badgers. Dogs welcome at Cwm Connell Coastal Cottages.

About the Owner

Lisa & Paul Godfrey live at Cwm Connell Coastal Cottages with their three teenage sons. "We've managed Cwm Connell Coastal Cottages for Eight years now. We can cater for up to 34 guests or just 2. When taking over in 2007 the first priority was to improve the standard and grading offered by the cottages. We're happy to say that we continue to obtain a high 4 star grading for Cwm Connell Cottages and a five star grading for Seaview Cottage, from Visit Wales. We have plenty of great reviews from our guests, many of whom return every year. We're very proud of our cottages. We know the area well and we are available, if you need us, to offer great holiday tips".

A wonderful stay

  • 4 of 5

My girlfriend, my father and I enjoyed a really memorable week in the rolling hills and coastline of Wales. We picked a great week with great weather and were treated to something very special at Cwm Connell Cottages. Lisa and Paul were wonderful hosts. The cottage was very comfortable and lacked for very little. Theres loads to do in the area. A great place to stay.

Thanks Paul and Lisa

From the Owner

Cwm Connell is a 16th century property in a secluded rural setting, hidden at the end of a quiet country lane, with no air or road traffic noise. Our gardens are a haven for nature and are visited by a vast array of birds, butterflies, and even badgers. We have direct access to the quiet cove of Ceibwr Bay which at times you can have to yourself even in peak season. Only a 15 minute drive to Cardigan Market Town so perfect for the odd trip out to buy essentials or just mooch around the array of interesting shops.
